Pros – Working with great people who care about what they do. The opportunity to grow if you show you have the passion, ability and motivation. An ethical business that puts its clients and customers first - believing its about long term relationships not short term deals.
Cons – Its a place for self starters - people who need lots of structure and process will find it difficult. Owner managed business isn't to everyone's liking.
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
Pros – Rebellious atmosphere where people are open about the horrors and dissatisfaction with the company, they have nothing left to lose.
They hire literally anyone so it's not a bad opportunity for someone with little experience.
Cons – The management are incompetent barrow-boys, brutal and uneducated with no solution to any problem other than more flogging, 0 creativity. So many people quit that they quit faster than they can be replaced, and they hire 10-20 people per week for a project, which means that the projects flounder as if you've been there for 2 or 3 months you're a relative veteran! The number of people quitting means that the burden is greater for those who don't quit.
There are also rumours that they rip off their clients by charging the clients for staff that they've already fired or have paid a fraction of what they are charging clients for.
Advice to Senior Management – Promptly fire yourselves, dissolve the company and go and work for someone who has even the faintest idea of what they're doing, perhaps someone who has won a game of Monopoly or something.

Pros – It was 10 miles from my home
Cons – The management of this company have egos the size of a small galaxy. They despise contractors whilst at the same time requiring them to fulfill their requirements. Like some kind of putrid symbiosis.
Advice to Senior Management – Get a new career. Try estate agency or used car selling. Something decent and honest
